Gastrointestinal surgery:

Gastrointestinal surgery is a treatment for diseases of the parts of the body involved in digestion. This includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and rectum. It also includes the liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Surgery may be used to remove a cancerous or noncancerous growth or damaged part of the body, such as the intestine. It may also be used to repair a problem like a hernia. Minor surgical procedures are used to screen and diagnose problems of the digestive system.

 

Gastrointestinal surgery

 

Gastrointestinal conditions that may be treated with surgery:

  • Appendicitis- When the appendix becomes infected and inflamed, it may be removed.
  • Colon cancer and other gastrointestinal cancers- Surgery is done to remove cancerous tumors in the digestive system and parts of the digestive system that have cancer.
  • Diverticular disease- A diverticulum is a small pouch or pocket in the colon that is the large intestine. Sometimes they can become inflamed and cause pain. This is often managed without surgery.
  • Gallbladder disease- When there is a problem with the gallbladder — usually gallstones — the gallbladder can be removed.
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and Hiatal hernias- GERD, or acid reflux is when the acid from the stomach backs up into the esophagus that is food pipe and causes heartburn. This is when the stomach pushes through the diaphragm, a muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen. The surgeon will fix the hernia if there is one and then wrap the top of the stomach around the bottom of the esophagus to strengthen the sphincter, which keeps acid out.
  • Hernia- A hernia is when a part of the body comes through a weak spot in the wall of muscle or connective tissue that’s supposed to protect it like the abdomen. Gastrointestinal surgeons can weak spot.
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis)-With inflammatory bowel disease, the immune system attacks the intestines and causes pain and inflammation. This can lead to damage to the intestine. Sometimes the damaged parts are removed and the healthy parts are reconnected.
  • Rectal prolapsed- Surgery is used to treat rectal prolapsed, a condition in which part of the intestine comes through the anus.

A surgical procedure called an endoscopy is used to screen and diagnose problems of the digestive system. The doctor puts a long, thin tube with a tiny camera into the body to see inside. To check for colon cancer or other problems of the intestines, the doctor puts the scope through the anus into the intestine.

 

Risks:

  • Infection- Anytime the body is opened up, infections can get in. Surgeons are very careful about keeping things sterile and clean during surgery, but there is always a chance of infection.
  • Pain- Depending on the surgery, there may be soreness and pain during recovery.
  • Bleeding and blood clots- Sometimes cuts from surgery continue to bleed, which can make recovery take longer.
  • Reaction to anesthesia- Some people don’t react well to anesthesia and may have nausea and vomiting.

 

Benefits:

  • Surgery to remove a tumor or diseased body part, or repair damage, can be lifesaving. Surgery can also improve the quality of life for someone who has not benefited from other treatments, like medicine or diet changes.
